…canvasses votes for PDP for better Nigeria

Delta State Governor and Vice-Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), forthcoming general elections, has urged Nigerians not to despair over the myriads of challenges plaguing the nation, saying the Atiku-Okowa Presidency would restore hope in the country if elected.

Okowa, while speaking at the grand finale of the PDP Presidential Campaign in Yola, Adamawa State, described Nigeria as a patient in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of a hospital, asserting that the PDP Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, was the only “competent consultant” to treat the “patient” and get it out of danger.

Okowa, therefore, urged the people of Adamawa and Nigerians to vote the Atiku-Okowa ticket in the forthcoming presidential election for a new and healthy Nigeria.

He thanked the people for their massive support to the party and assured that Atiku would turn things around for good if voted into power.

He urged Nigerians to get their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) ready ahead of the presidential election on Saturday and mobilise massively for the Atiku-Okowa ticket by voting overwhelmingly for the PDP.

“We know that Nigerians are in so much pains, we know that Nigerians are troubled in their hearts. We know that Nigerians are hungry, we know that students are worried about their education, and we know that businessmen, even the small businessmen, are worried that their businesses will collapse,” Okowa said.

“We also know that many of our farmers are worried about going to their farms because of insecurity and the fact that they cannot have access to fertilisers because of the high cost.

“Do not worry, help is coming on the way and that help is Atiku Abubakar,” he said.

While reiterating the need for Nigerians to get their PVCs ready for the forthcoming general elections, he said, “Those in your villages, those in your towns, your fathers and your mothers, mobilise all of them and on Saturday, February 25, come out en masse and cast your votes. You will be assured that your help has come and that your future is truly secured.”

He added that Atiku, from day one in office, would lead Nigeria in the right direction “and not the Nigeria that we talk about today because the contemporary Nigeria is full of pains”.

Okowa assured that the future would be good for Nigerians with Atiku, pointing out that he was the only man in the race that had capacity to secure the future of the youths.

The Vice Presidential candidate implored Nigerians to be wary of the people who were lying to them, stressing that Atiku was the only man with the experience to lead the country at this critical time.

“I count myself lucky to be his vice presidential candidate because I know that he is capable of delivering; I know he is somebody I can learn from, but those other people contesting want to use Nigeria to learn,” Okowa said.

“We are not looking for learners but experienced men with the knowledge of Nigeria that can unite us and lead us unto the path of growth.

“So, please go out there and talk to our people and let them know that help is on the way and that the help is Atiku Abubakar,” he said.
